40/40 – Lenten Activities: Make a Paper Palm Branch

To help catechists prepare their young people for Palm Sunday, this Lenten activity  demonstrates how to make a paper palm branch. For this activity, we visit a site we have been to before: http://www.sundayschoolkids.com/activities-lent-easter/1-straw-palm-instru.htm.

Make a Paper Palm Branch

  • Here’s how the folks at Sunday School Kids describe this activity:

After having experienced distributing of real palm fronds in Sunday School for many years, I think paper palms are much safer. I’ve had palm fronds up to 6 feet long, and these “spears” were rather sharp. In the hands of children, they can be an attractive nuisance for sword fights, and an inadvertent object for poking people.

  • This activity looks like a lot of fun. Enjoy!  Click here!
